Highlights of Sri Tallapaka Annamacharya 608th Jayanthi Festival 

Sri Venkateswara Annamacharya Society of America commemorated the 608th Jayanthi of Sri Tallapaka Annamacharya during 16-21 May 2016
at the SVASA premises, Riverside and at The Sanathan Dharma Mandir, Norwalk, CA, USA.

This year is the 26th year in a row that the organization commemorated the Sri Tallapaka Annamacharya Jayanthi.  The Jaynathi Commemoration Festival started on 16 May at SVASA premises, Riverside, and concluded with the Sri Venkateswara Sankeerthana Kalyanothsavam performed by SVASA at the Sanathana Dharma Mandir, Norwalk on 21 May.  Annamacharya composed scores of Kalyanothsavam Sankeerthanas and it is believed that Annamacharya used to recite these Sankeerthanas while performing the Padmavathi Srinivasa Kalyanam.  SVASA continued the tradition introduced by SVASA in 2011, of performing Kalyanothsavan with Annamacharya Sankeerthana recital at each Ghattam of the Kalyanothsavam, in an attempt to enable devotees imagine the Kalyanothsavam performed by Annamacharya 600 years back. Sri Venkateswara Annamacharya Society of America performed the Sri Venkateswara Sankeerthana Kalyanothsavam during the Jayanthi festival with recital of Annamacharya Sankeerthanas at each Ghattam (Step) of the Kalyanothsavam.

The commemoration festival started on 16 May at 7am in the organization's premises in Riverside with Sri Venkateswara Suprabhatham followed by Sri Venkateswara Namocharana, Gurudeva Prardhana (SreeMathvadeeya), and Guru Sthuthi Sankeerthanam.

The festival continued at the Sanathan Mandir on 22 May from 8am to 6pm with devotees singing Gurudeva Prardhana (Sreemathvadeeya) followed by Uregimpu and Nagara Sankeerthanam.   Later the devotees gathered at the sanctum sanctorum of the temple and honored Annamacharya by singing numerous Sankeerthanas. The president of the organization, briefly presented the outline of day's events and an introduction on Annamacharya, his life and works before starting Srivari Kalyanothsavam.
